Summer at Sage

Credit Classes

Daily Classes for Five Weeks

List of 1 items.

  • Full Year of Academic Credit

Complete a year’s work and earn a full year’s credit through daily classes and regularly assigned homework. Sage Hill students who successfully complete an academic credit course receive graduation credit on their transcripts, as well as a letter grade incorporated into their GPA (students from other high schools must confirm their own school’s credit requirements). Please note that credit classes taken while a student is in grades 6-8 will not apply toward Sage Hill’s graduation requirements if that student ends up attending the School.

Credit classes meet daily for five weeks, June 24 to July 26, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, or 12:30 to 4:30 PM. Courses are taught by Sage Hill faculty. Students are only permitted to take one credit class per summer.

Registration will open on March 1, 2024.

Textbooks
Sage Hill School partners with Follett Virtual Campus as our official textbook provider. Textbook information for summer credit classes will be available on May 22. Please check back for more information.

Science

List of 2 items.

  • Advanced Research in the Sciences

    Who: Students entering grades 11-12
    When: June 24 to July 26; 12:30 to 4:30 PM
    What: Advanced Research in the Sciences is an advanced college-preparatory course that provides upper-level students with a deep, working understanding of the process of scientific research. The course represents the highest level of study within our science and social sciences curriculum, matching the quality and rigor of our Advanced Placement (AP) offerings and exceeding the standards of quality for the requirements of laboratory science (“d”). Some aspects of the course are more closely aligned with a graduate-level experience. Students participate in every aspect of a joint research project, from the identification of a question and collection of data to the critical analysis of their findings. The course is designed to provide a more holistic view of the sciences, and it is especially well tailored for students who are considering major studies in the lab sciences or social sciences in college and careers in STEM. The curriculum is designed to provide a combination of deeper knowledge of content, technical skills and practical experience that will pave the way to university-level studies and laboratory work in the discipline.
    Prerequisite: This course is open to 11th or 12th grade students who have successfully completed coursework in Chemistry, Biology, and Algebra II. 
    Cost: $3,000

    Note: This is a blended course; two days per week will be spent approaching coursework via Canvas, and three afternoons per week will be spent in the on-campus laboratory.
  • Biology

    Who: Students entering grades 10-12
    When: June 24 to July 26; 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Class will not be held July 4-5)
    What: Key subjects explored include cell biology, genetics and evolution, the diversity of life, human anatomy and physiology, and population and community ecology.
    Prerequisite: This course is open to students in their sophomore year or beyond who have completed a year of high school laboratory chemistry.
    Cost: $2,950
